I expect that I could be a surgical candidate, but I have not returned to the gi doc since my upper endoscopy approaching 3 years ago. Some days I take a TUMS for my heartburn, but often I don't because it goes away quickly. I feel that both Fast Tract and a low fat diet are helpful. If I'm not feeling great I stick to protein and vegetables. Most days I eat protein carbs and fats at every meal. When I travel occasionally, I stick to grilled chicken salad or something similar. I don't want more meds or surgery. I'm satisfied with my life the way it is right now. The acid-reducing meds just made my digestion worse. Mayo clinic posted something recently that both carbs and fats make heartburn worse, I agree with that.
